Recently, Shar went on a ‘bookshop tour’ aka travelled to a fair few places, some of which involved her purchase of books. This is the story of everything she did (not literally: only the interesting parts) in the first 3 weeks of October.
Shar took a annoying 3 hour standardised exam, turned 17, and went on a school trip to near where she used to live. It was pretty. She also went to her and Shanti’s favourite childhood bookshop to buy her a birthday present (Shanti was not on the trip with her, because she was going somewhere Shar had already gone because Shar is more ahead of the game than Shanti is) (or so she likes to think)
Shar got Shanti these for her birthday:
And Shanti gave Shar this (currently halfway through and very confused)
Shar went to Jaipur, Rajasthan, for her midterm break, along with her family and some other people. There were a lot of pretty building and such ( but no bookshops)
Shar went to Singapore for various reasons (actually 1 reason but anyway). She was ALL BY HERSELF which was terrifying, but she didn’t a) lose her passport, b) die, c) get kidnapped, or d) any combination of the above, which was good. She also met Topaz and bought her mother a cookbook at BooksActually.
Shar went to school and was stressed. (And so it continued in November) (Also had a long weekend, in which she did homework)
Have you had any adventures of late? Were they fun? Did you have to ( oh horror) adult? What is going on in your life (hopefully less stress than Shar’s). Do you like third person?
